A Nightmare on Elm Street [2010] 4th Clip

Dreamscape and the transitions are the raison d’ĂȘtre of the franchise. Katie Cassidy plays Kris – an update of Tina. The web has rumbled about how old she is – 22 at the time of filming. The trouble is she doesn’t look like a teenager. A young person’s face is baby fat. Cassidy’s is drawn. She looks like a Hollywood actress on a perpetual diet. By contrast her co-star, Rooney Mara, who is only a year younger, looks the part. The character Tina was prominent in the first film. Cassidy is prominent in the clips and trailers. Though her performance in this clip is utilitarian Cassidy is casting error #1.

This clip may be an edited version of the scene because it doesn’t make sense that one of the furies would lead Kris to Freddy. He may not be wise cracking but that dialogue is superfluous. He doesn’t have to say anything.

Overall the dreamscape look is fantastic. The longshot, Kris’s approach to camera, the fury entering the frame, the Freddy reveal. It looks like Bayer may have his images together – at least in dreams.

We await the story.
